Always show as guest

Every time I use my bookmarks to show the forums I come up as Guest. I always login and yes, I check the "remember me" box. I don't have any trouble with cookies as all the other sites I frequent remember me just fine. I am using Netscape and Windows 2000. This has been going on for a few weeks now and I haven't changed anything.

Thanks,
Mike D.

Same here. When I visit
http://www.early-retirement.org/forums/
it says "Welcome, guest."
But when I enter a forum it suddenly remembers who I am.
I'm also using Mozilla.

There's the problem. (The "www.") Delete the bookmark, click the home button near the top of the page and bookmark the resulting link which is http://early-retirement.org/forums/index.php .

Your remembered login is stored in a cookie, and the extra www is causing a different cookie to be used.

Hmmm, maybe I can resolve this on the server end with a redirect...

EDIT: No, I can't fix it server-side without some crazy magic beyond what I can do on a shared host. Just leave out the "www." and things will work smoother.

I had the same problem a couple of years ago. Not using the 'www' fixes it long term.
